It's funny when your kids let you know you got something right without even realizing they're doing so. Like Daniel, the other day, when we were listening to the Fiddler On the Roof soundtrack and he remarked, "It's funny how this is both the least romantic and the most romantic love song in the whole musical."

It is. I'm glad he can see that :)

  • Tevye: Golde, I have decided to give Perchik permission to become engaged to our daughter, Hodel.
  • Golde: What??? He's poor! He has nothing, absolutely nothing!
  • Tevye: He's a good man, Golde. I like him. He's a little crazy, but I like him. And what's more important, Hodel likes him. Hodel loves him.
    So what can we do?
    It's a new world, Golde... A new world.
    Love. Golde...
    Do you love me?
  • Golde: Do I what?
  • Tevye: Do you love me?
  • Golde: Do I love you?
  • Tevye: Well?
  • Golde: With our daughters getting married
    And this trouble in the town
    You're upset, you're worn out
    Go inside, go lie down!
    Maybe it's indigestion
  • Tevye: Golde I'm asking you a question..
    Do you love me?
  • Golde: You're a fool
  • Tevye: I know...
    But do you love me?
  • Golde: Do I love you?
    For twenty-five years I've washed your clothes
    Cooked your meals, cleaned your house
    Given you children, milked your cow
    After twenty-five years, why talk about love right now?
  • Tevye: Golde,
    The first time I met you
    Was on our wedding day
    I was scared
  • Golde: I was shy
  • Tevye: I was nervous
  • Golde: So was I
  • Tevye: But my father and my mother
    Said we'd learn to love each other
    And now I'm asking, Golde
    Do you love me?
  • Golde: I'm your wife!
  • Tevye: I know...
    But do you love me?
  • Golde: Do I love him?
    For twenty-five years I've lived with him
    Fought with him, starved with him
    Twenty-five years my bed is his
    If that's not love, what is?
  • Tevye: Then you love me?
  • Golde: I suppose I do
  • Tevye: And I suppose I love you too
  • Both: It doesn't change a thing
    But even so
    After twenty-five years
    It's nice to know
